Dan Mullen’s Mississippi State Bulldogs pulled off a thrilling 51-50 victory over the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday night in Fayetteville. The reason Mississippi State was able to take the one-point lead in the fourth quarter all goes to Prescott, who engineered a 6 play, 82-yard drive to take the lead. He would finish the night having thrown for 508 yards and five touchdowns, along with two more touchdowns scored on the ground.
After the Bulldogs’ victory, head coach Dan Mullen said in his post game presser that the quarterback is ‘the best player he’s ever coached.’
While it’s true — Prescott has put up unreal numbers during this season, some good enough to join records held by some of the best collegiate players in SEC history — such as Johnny Manziel, Aaron Murray and last but not least — Tim Tebow.
A certain contingent of Florida Gator fans may disagree with Mullen’s high praise of Prescott describing him as the best he’s ever coached. In case you forgot, Mullen served as offensive coordinator during the Tebow Era in Gainesville — one that featured two SEC and National Titles, a Heisman Trophy and arguably one of the greatest offenses, and quarterbacks in all of college football.
Look, I’m not trying to be a Tim Tebow apologist by any means, and I never have been, but I’m sure there will be some Florida fans who will question this statement from Mullen.
Anything to stir up the masses, right?
